On the show today is Sean Cannell
. Sean is a YouTuber, international speaker, founder of Think Media, and host of the Video Influencers podcast.
I wanted to bring Sean on because no one knows YouTube like Sean. Sean's YouTube channels have over 1,000,000 subscribers, his videos have been viewed over 100 million times.
You'll hear about YouTube SEO and what it takes to rank for competitive keywords, the patterns of viral videos, the metrics you need to know and how to turn analytics into action, and advanced strategies for growing your YouTube channel from scratch.
